Playdale is excited to announce the launch of Street Workouts by Playparc, our NEW range of outdoor strength & fitness calisthenics* equipment for everyone aged 14 years+.
The definition of calisthenics describes them as ‘gymnastic exercises to achieve bodily fitness and grace of movement’. ‘Urban’ calisthenics are a type of street workout where individuals and groups train outdoors using gross motor movements including swinging, pushing, pulling, jumping, flipping and bending. It provides all the benefits of a muscular and aerobic workout whilst all the time improving psychomotor skills like coordination and balance.
The Street Workouts range offers three different units (The Basic, The Crazy Bars and The Allround) to suit individual sites and locations. They are a great addition to existing outdoor fitness areas. With galvanised steel upright posts and stainless steel crossbars, ladders and parallel bars, these units are extremely low maintenance, vandal resistant and really easy to install! The varying sized bars are all positioned at different heights and in different places to accommodate all exercises.
Outdoor fitness is more popular than ever before. As people’s lives become more and more sedentary, it has never been more important to make regular exercise a part of your everyday life. The government recommends that everyone participates in at least 30 minutes exercise every day which improves heart health, raises fitness and helps to combat and remove us from these sedentary lifestyles. To be able to do this in the fresh air, in a place that is easily accessible and with no cost to users whatsoever is a definite win-win scenario!
As well as improving body strength, fitness and flexibility these workout units encourage socialising, especially for teenagers and young adults.
It’s workout time!

We have had an amazing day at the Playdale factory in Haverthwaite. Playdale are building our new climbing frame next month and invited us along to see how it was designed and made. It was also a fantastic opportunity to learn about and handle wood, rubber, rope, metal and CGL. Thank you so much to […]
Winter is almost upon us. The clocks have already gone back and the weather grows ever colder. When the grass starts to crunch in the morning, and the mercury plummets, it’s tempting to huddle up indoors and wait for the warmer months to reappear. However, there is still scope to use and enjoy playgrounds in […]
